Succinct, clear writing is underrated. Ironically, a book called Brief was posted on Product Hunt a year ago to also help people write more succinctly. ๐Ÿ˜Š

@rrhoover It would be ironic if the book was super long, otherwise it's my understanding it would just be a coincidence

@rrhoover Especially in academia. I have spent almost an hour writing a specific and short thesis and my lecturer was like: "Not enough words..." O.o

Hey everyone! I just published brief to the Chrome webstore and added the ability to force send an email via triple click. If you've already installed it from the .crx, remove that and install the web store version instead! https://chrome.google.com/websto...

I'm a notoriously wordy writer - saw this a few days ago on Safia's twitter and had to share it with the rest of PH! I'm a big fan of Polymail, so I'm not sure how I'll integrate this into my day-to-day life, but it's a great tool nonetheless. Thanks Safia! ๐Ÿ“ฌ ๐Ÿ’Œ ๐Ÿ“ฎ

@nickabouzeid Thanks for sharing this, Nick! Yeah, I'm not sure that Polymail has an extensions API for this to be added. I used Nylas and that has extensions so that might be where I take this next.

@captainsafia Excited to try out Nylas if you can get it working! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Great work ๐Ÿ‘ Would love to see a 'max words per paragraph' count too. Nothing worse than a block of text in an email either!
